Abstract. The article shows results of the GPR investigation in the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (XIV–XVI AD). Due to the wars in the 20th century, the majority of the documents connected with the church's history was lost. For this reason under the floor of the catholic temple, the unknown structures might still exist. To verify the presence of underground structures such as crypts and tombs, a GPR survey was carried out in chapels and aisles with 500 and 800 MHz GPR shielded antennas. During the investigation, numerous anomalies were detected. It was concluded that anomalies under the chapels were caused by the presence of the crypt beneath the floor. The presented work shows first results of GPR surveys in the church in Kłodzko.

Short summary
The paper presents the first results of ground penetrating radar investigation in the church in Kłodzko, Poland. The research was part of SEG Field Camp, which was organized by SEG Student Chapter Cracow and SEG Bucharest Student Chapter. The aim was to verify the presence of possible underground structures. Among the most important discoveries are previously unknown crypts. Results of the research might be helpful for future archeological excavations and other investigations in the church.
